Winnik, Getzlaf lead Ducks past Flames 5-4
ANAHEIM 5, CALGARY 4

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Daniel Winnik and Ryan Getzlaf each
scored two goals as the Anaheim Ducks edged the Calgary Flames
5-4 on Monday night.



Saku Koivu had the other goal for Anaheim, which opened the
season with two road wins and will enjoy a rare three-day rest
in this year's compressed schedule before hosting Vancouver in
its home opener Friday.



Signed as a free agent last summer, Winnik has found instant
chemistry on a line with Koivu and Andrew Cogliano. All three
were in on Winnik's go-ahead goal at 4:02 of the third period,
which broke a 3-3 tie.



Curtis Glencross had two goals, and Lee Stempniak and Alex
Tanguay also scored for Calgary, which opened with consecutive
home losses.



The culprit on the go-ahead goal was Tanguay, who was 150 feet
from where it was scored. His pass into the slot on a Flames
rush was picked off by Cogliano, who promptly turned and led a
rush up ice that was eventually finished off by Winnik.



Winnik, with his third and fourth goals of the season, is tied
with Chicago's Marian Hossa for the most goals in the very young
NHL season and is suddenly just seven goals off his career high.



Getzlaf added his second goal of the night at 11:15 to make it
5-3, and, although the Flames got back to within one on
Stempniak's breakaway goal three minutes later, Calgary was
unable to get the tying goal past Jonas Hiller.



On the heels of a 4-1 loss Sunday night to the San Jose Sharks
in which Calgary led 1-0 after one period, only to fall apart,
the Flames got off to the worst possible start. Fans were still
making their way to the seats when Anaheim opened the scoring at
1:06 on a nifty deflection by Getzlaf of Toni Lydman's point
shot.



Koivu flicked in Cogliano's centering pass at 7:23 to make it
2-0, and Winnik's shot deflected off Wideman and behind Miikka
Kiprusoff 3 minutes later.



With Anaheim up 3-0 on the scoreboard, 9-2 on the shot clock,
and having sucked all the energy out of the Scotiabank
Saddledome's normally boisterous sea of red fans, the Flames
were looking for a spark - and they got one when Lydman was sent
off for cross-checking at 16:15.



With new addition Dennis Wideman quarterbacking the power play,
it took Calgary 39 seconds to connect when Wideman's shot was
deflected in by Glencross.



Calgary cut the deficit to 3-2 with 26 seconds left in the first
after Tanguay beat Hiller over the blocker on a wrist shot.



A penalty with one second left in the first put the Flames back
onto the power play to open up the second period and again it
was Glencross connecting with another deflection to tie it 3-3.



Calgary outshot the Ducks 14-3 in the second and could have
taken the lead if not for some sharp saves from Hiller, his best
being a pad stop of Stempniak on a breakaway that would have put
Calgary in front.



Hiller finished the game with 21 saves, while Kiprusoff stopped
19 shots.



Notes: The appointment for Flames C Roman Cervenka (blood clots)
to see a specialist in Phoenix about his condition was postponed
until Tuesday. ... Seven of Winnik's 40 career goals have come
against the Flames. His career high for goals in a season is 11.
... Calgary made two lineup changes, inserting center Blair
Jones and defenseman T.J. Brodie in place of left wing Steve
Begin and defenseman Derek Smith. Jones played in his 100th NHL
game. ... Anaheim welcomed back defenseman Cam Fowler after he
missed Saturday's opener with the flu. ... The Flames have eight
more sets of back-to-back games. ... Anaheim right wing Teemu
Selanne is tied with Phil Esposito for third all-time with 249
career power-play goals.
